Training continues in Bratunac tomorrow

Sweden/USAID FARMA II project, in cooperation with local partners, is delivering new lectures and workshops on "Post-harvest Product Management - Harvesting, Storage and Preservation of Fruits and Vegetables as well as Modern Fruit and Vegetable Preservation Technologies" across the country.

The lecturer is expert Mr. Nenad Magazin, from the Faculty of Agriculture in Novi Sad, and the interest of local producers shows the need for continuation of the education and exchange of good practices in this segment of agriculture.

"The lectures were successfully delivered in Čelić, Mostar and Ljubuški, and tomorrow (November 14) they will be held in the Culture Center of Bratunac Municipality, starting at 11h. After the lecture, we also organize visits and hands-on training directly in the field at some of the nearby plantations and cold storages where the companies store fruits and vegetables and further sort and pack them for sale,” Sweden/USAID FARMA II project explains.

The workshops are an opportunity for all participants involved in the production, purchase, and placement of fruits and vegetables to become familiar with current trends and technologies when it comes to harvesting, storing fruits and vegetables, as well as other related topics.

"The results achieved in the production and marketing of fruits in recent years, especially in the production and placement of berries, apples, pears and plums, show the importance and success of these crops. Because of all of the above mentioned, the goal of the education and practical workshops is to bring together key players in the production, purchase and sale and distribution of fruits and vegetables across BiH, and transfer new knowledge related to harvesting and storage, that is the management of post-harvest products, which is necessary for further strengthening, development and better positioning of production in Bosnia and Herzegovina,” Sweden/USAID FARMA II project concluded.
